Happy Chinese New Year of the Ox

Dear Parents/Guardians,

It is almost unbelievable that we are now one year on and still dealing with the impact of the COVID 19 pandemic. We know it has been a difficult year for you, with many of you managing school from home as well as the demands of your own professional lives. Many of you have also felt the financial impact of the past year.

While the end is not yet fully in sight, we have truly appreciated your ongoing support, your patience and your counsel over the course of the past year. We often talk about how important our Sha Tin College family and community is. We tend it lovingly and celebrate it often. It gives us strength, it makes us proud, it challenges us, it encourages us to have courage and it forgives us often.  We have drawn strength and comfort from each other over the course of the past year and will hopefully continue to do so over the coming months.

As we approach this very important and special time of year where everything is about family, we have much to be grateful for.

On behalf of all of the Sha Tin College staff I would like to wish all our Sha Tin College families a safe and prosperous new year. Here is a short holiday video for all of you.

Kung Hei Fat Choy and a Happy Chinese New Year of the Ox!

Message from the PTSA

Dear Parents,

I hope this message finds you well.

At the PTSA we are always on the lookout for ways to support the school, the parents and ultimately our children. In light of the ongoing impact of the pandemic, ESF has recently conducted a survey of all stakeholders about their wellbeing.

From the survey our teachers are showing some signs of fatigue. The ever-changing regulations of the lockdown, not being able to travel home and various other reasons make the life of teachers extra difficult.

Chinese New Year is the festival of unity. This is the time Chinese people go home and meet with families, to show their care and love for each other. This is the time of year we recharge with positive energy and support.

This year, let us welcome our teachers as our family. Show them the love and care they missed because they are not able to travel back home. Show the teachers we give them all the support we can. Let us celebrate this Chinese New Year as one big family.

Be safe, stay strong.

Thomas Lam @STC PTSA
